A year ago, Jennings and Ellis were the dynamic backcourt for a Bucks team which is 3-15 and has hit hard times today. "It's the situation he's in. He's on a team where they need somebody to score. Dirk (Nowitzki) is not that scorer like he used to be. He still can do it, don't get me wrong. But he (Ellis) is in a situation kind of like he was in at Golden State, before Stephen Curry and all of them got there. So he's the main scorer and he's the guy," Jennings said of Ellis' explosion.

After a day off Tuesday, that's a formula the Pistons hope Jennings can recreate Wednesday against the Chicago Bulls here. "I've been trying to balance that," Jennings said. "There's been times where I've been getting so many guys involved, I kind of forget to score sometimes. That's been what's kind of messing up my rhythm a little bit. "I've got to try to find a way to not go five minutes, 10 minutes without taking a shot, then taking my first shot. It's been kind of a different situation for me but I think I'm kind of just picking it up right now." Booth Newspapers

Pistons GM Joe Dumars made two important moves in the offseason — signing Josh Smith as a free agent and trading for point guard Brandon Jennings. The two players have had minimal impact on the Pistons thus far. “The big problem with those two guys is they’re not first-option scorers, but they have a first-option mentality,” NBA TV analyst Greg Anthony said. “They make more poor decisions with their shot selection than anything else. It’s a domino effect. When your teammates see you taking tough, ill-advised shots, it takes their energy and motivation from them.” News-Herald

Asked if Jennings broke a code by knocking a player, Smith said, “There’s no loyalty in this game. There’s no player-to-player loyalty, no loyalty to teams, no loyalty to anything in this game. I expect there should be that but there isn’t.” The Knicks put up with all of Smith’s off-the-court shenanigans because they feel if properly harnessed, Smith can turn into an All-Star this season. Smith was placed on the All-Star ballot Friday — the first time his name has appeared there. New York Post

The New York Knicks guard, who was fined $25,000 by the NBA last year for a racy tweet, had a new problem Thursday after an exchange with Detroit's Brandon Jennings that appeared to include a threat. "I'm always in trouble with Twitter," Smith said before the Knicks played Houston. "I don't know what it is. Trying to shake it."

But Smith denied any bad intent, saying he and Jennings have played together in the summer and had a good relationship. "There's a way to threaten somebody and that's not the way, to publicly threaten somebody," Smith said. NBA.com
